Tater Tuesday – One Homer Rattlers (2009-2013)

Welcome to Tater Tuesday on the blog. Each week I’ll take a look at home runs or – as the Great George Scott called them – taters. Usually, this will be home runs by a Timber Rattlers player.

In the past editions of Tater Tuesday, I have focused on the sluggers.  This week how about a look at the Rattlers of the Milwaukee Affiliation Era who hit just a single home run in a regular season.
